Error when restoring a VM to another ESXi Host (Free version of ESXi)
I have an issue when restoring a VM to another ESXi host, I get the error "Final error: 0xe000957e - Unable to create the new virtual machine" and th ejob fails.
I do notice that it seems to start and gets as for as 24.7kb each time then fails.
I am restoring to the Free version of ESXi 5.1 update 1 - you are not required to license the free version as its Free from Vmware (but has limitations obvioulsy). I read a recent post saying the VMware ESXi that you are restoring to needs to be licensed (eg - if you use the full version of VMWare you it probably won't do it within the 30day trail period). However, to be clear I am using the FREE ESXi software - there is no license, its a test box with just to test the restore.
I've raised a case with Symantec and I'm awaiting feedback but they advised me to come here too.
